If we are asked, which species on earth is the best friend of humans, probably we all will say dog, however, some may bet on cats, pigs and other pets. Although dog provides us some emotional/mental health benefit and help us with few of our daily life jobs they directly can’t protect you from heart attack or stroke. Same for pigs, eating a lot of their yummy flesh can shoot your lipids high up and risk your life. But in this regard there is one particular species which serves humans probably the most, though most don’t seem to understand it. Yes, we are talking about the poor sea fishes. These fishes are today suffocated by human sea activities like oil spillage in the sea, over-hunting of fishes and lots.

Those who regularly read health websites, journals may be aware of the potency of the fatty sea fishes in providing good fatty acids which are protective to human heart. To surprise you further let me share with you a new fact that came in front of us through a large study, that these fatty sea fishes can decrease our chances of developing a rheumatoid arthritis. It’s the same omega 3 fatty acid which is known to have some protective role in battling heart attack and stroke can lessen the chance of developing a rheumatoid arthritis. Yet, if you are genetically susceptible from the latter you may not be benefited since your gene is betraying you here. The protection against this specific type of arthritis may be by virtue of certain anti-inflammatory property of this fatty acid. So, if you are planning to add a non-vegetarian dish to your meal, you may choose fish like salmon or mackerel instead of meat products.

Breast cancer prevention: fish role

We should be always thankful to the oily fishes like salmon, sardines or tuna because of their contribution towards multiple health benefits to humans. Man already found their importance since these fishes provide certain good fats (sometimes called PUFA) to battle stroke and heart problems. Now a small but significant new benefit of these oily fishes unfolded, they can provide women protection from breast cancer too.

Although fishes are proving themselves as angels to our lives, meat products are continuously losing their position with respect to human health benefits. Meats (red meat mainly) are accused as risk factor hypertension, obesity, heart problems, breast cancer etc. Therefore man should now think of saving the home of these fishes so that further pollution of the river and sea waters can be prevented to preserve the habitat of these aquatics. Protecting their ecosystem can let them live in huge numbers and every man can get access to these creatures with in a reasonable price to get some protection from heart problems or stroke or breast cancer.

Grilled meat and fish might cause cancer

Are you ever worried of getting any health hazard while consuming grilled fish or meat, probably not and we might not like someone bothering us while consuming these yummy recipes. Well let me share a piece of information about these grilled food products and necessarily try bothering you for some betterment of our lives.

Grilling food is nothing but applying excessive dry heat to cook food and the direct benefit is it doesn’t require the oil to fry and might help avoiding cholesterol levels piling up in our body and protect the heart.

But that’s not all about the story, here is the bitter end of it- researchers found that when meat or fish products are exposed to high temperature dry heat certain chemical are generated called heterocyclic amines (HCAs). Researchers fed rodents certain HCA containing food products and found that the rodents developed cancer. So we can call HCA carcinogenic (i.e. a chemical which can cause cancer).

So next time before consuming too much of grilled food you might consider it’s carcinogenic potential too.

Microwave ovens might be a better alternative to cook than dry heating food.
